The Peaks View Residence was designed by Carney Logan Burke Architects with two primary objectives: to blend in with the existing conservative neighborhood, whilst fulfilling the homeowners’; wish for a contemporary, one-of-a-sort design. The architects produced a multi-volume structure that gives all the living space (6,500 sq. ft. of it!) without having the overwhelming scale. A pair of two-storey structures topped with gabled roofs offer a conventional appear suited to the neighborhood. In between them, a single-storey pavilion visually connects the two taller volumes even though generating a much more-intimate welcome into this home.
This picturesque setting in Wilson, Wyoming is surrounded by grassy fields and the Teton mountains towering in the distance. This spectacular view is maximized by the upward-tilting roof that invites the views into its glass-enclosed interiors.
The distinctive roofs hang over the home, making a perimeter of sheltered outdoor places for lounging and watching the globe go by in any weather. In between the two double volumes, the central pavilion features an extended overhanging roof that launches the main living area into the outdoors.
A skylight, a couple of Adirondack chairs, blue sky and mountains – what much more could you ask for in this countryside setting?
The 3 volumes take shape about a private courtyard which provides an intimate knowledge of nature within this rambling meadowed and mountainous area.
A modern day, industrial-style spiral staircase appears like a ribbon of steel, winding from the ground to the upper level of one particular of the volumes – an alfresco take on the traditional stairway.
The cedar-clad residence appears to recede into the countryside background, but for its contemporary touches of glass. By night, the residence becomes a warmly lit lantern, illuminated only by the light of the moon and the glow from the fire pit.
A cast concrete fireplace rises into the sky, higher above the rooftop – a beacon major you home by way of the fields.
The warm, welcoming scenes visible via the glass invite you to enter and unwind by the crackling fire.
Enter into a foyer that is a blend of countryside and modern, with every comfort of residence. The floor-to-ceiling glass walls illuminate interiors with warm sunlight, enhancing the honey tones of the dominating timber information all through.
The glass walls also supply a wonderful view from virtually each point in this residence.
Interiors are the image of residence, property on the range. The signature corner chimney that anchors the facade also plays a essential portion inside, warming up the look and the atmosphere.
The fireplace is a good traditional element – substantial in its statement of “home” but offset against modern touches like the floor-to-ceiling glass walls and modern lighting. The main living area is finished with timber floors and ceilings, and wood-framed windows – the best complement to the natural views just on the other side of the glass.
A dividing “half-wall” of rich wood cabinets separates the entertaining area from the kitchen workspace even though offering fashionable out-of-sight but easily accessible storage.
The kitchen is a scrumptious morsel. This intimate space characteristics light wood floors, dark wood cabinets and ceiling, and a multi-toned brick-style backsplash with a rustic air. Of course, couple of but fabulous contemporary touches won’;t be ignored, like the sleek stainless steel appliances and contemporary cabinetry hardware.
The sturdy lines of the ceiling boards always lead your eye back to the views.
Just off the kitchen, this tiny but sweet nook is a beautiful spot for cherished family dinners – surrounded by windows.
Of course, if it is a taste of the view you happen to be after, what greater place to take in it than from this sheltered outside dining region?
A Kimono display was incorporated into the foyer, offering a bit of Far East culture and art to this western land of dude ranches and grassy meadows, which is reflected in the rest of the residence. This open entranceway reveals a peek at the home’;s warm wood palette, perfectly fitting of this place.
A staircase top up is enclosed in wood slats that lets light from the glass wall on the other side flow freely by means of the space.
Additional to this open aesthetic, this simple however striking stairway attributes wood treads and an open rise, generating the impact of a floating sculpture that you can climb. As you step up the stairs, you get a great view of the area on the other side.
The wood-slat wall runs proper up to the top floor on 1 side, although the expansive window wall encloses the other side – we are making use of the term “encloses” loosely here, with the natural views just on the other side of the glass you virtually really feel like you are outdoors.
Following a tour of the primary floor, the bedroom follows suit with a palette of white and wood. The vaulted ceiling enhances this room’;s sense of space, resulting in a roomy retreat for sleep, rest and reflection. A corner of windows delivers a flood of natural light and views – a perfect place for a sitting area, away from the hubbub of the principal floor.
Even cowboys require a little luxury from time to time, and this spa-inspired bathroom is where it really is at! Delivering style and function, the white subway-tile backsplash and tub enclosure makes a minimalist yet contemporary finish to this bath.
Outfitted with a luxurious deep soaker tub and a shower, this bathroom gives every thing in the way of pampered primping and prepping. The shower’;s glass enclosure creates the illusion of a lot more space although leaving an open view to the window and beyond.
This wonderful stroll-in closet is the image of organized clothes and accessories – cowboy boots and all!
A bird’;s eye view of the home reveals just how significantly living space there is in this humble property on the range.
